Press Release – 8/26/2015

EnviroEye creates the Floating Roof Drain Guard System which eliminates potential contamination, permit violations, tank failures and extended downtime of above ground storage tanks.

SUMMARY: It’s all about reducing risk and protecting your stored petroleum. For the first time you can use EnviroEye’s Floating Roof Drain Guard System to mitigate unforeseen petroleum spills and possible EPA problems. Whether you keep your roof drain open or closed during normal operation, EnviroEye’s new technology can minimize your risk and alert you to any contamination by hydro carbons. This eliminates any need for in-person oversight 24/7, hands free electronic monitoring can watch while employees are not onsite It saves Tank Farm operators both time and money in addition to reducing the risk factors.

The new Floating Roof Drain Guard System by EnviroEye minimizes your risk! The Floating Roof Drain Guard System’s flow chamber includes a hydrocarbon sensor that can be set to a desired level of sensitivity. The sensor can detect the presence of hydrocarbons, signal the valve to close and prevent release of the storage tank contents. The system can be programmed to deploy a customized alert and eliminates the need for onsite ( as much) monitoring.

“At our facility, we have chosen to keep our floating roof drains open due to unpredictable severe weather. Keeping the roof drains open leaves the facility vulnerable to a potential product release should a failure occur within the floating roof drain system. This roof drain monitoring system eliminates that vulnerability with a detection system that closes the roof drain valve should it detect any product. As terminal manager, I sleep better at night knowing that EnviroEye is on the job 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.” Dan Silvestro Key West Pipeline Company Key West, Florida

ABOUT EnviroEye: EnviroEye founder Mark Rauch has owned and operated a pipeline and storage tank facility for over 25 years. One of the challenges in using floating open roof type storage tanks is protecting them from contamination from rain water and the ensuing damage from a spill or leak from the storage tanks. Most storage tanks have a drain system to remove any rain water but has some risks involved. With the help of a couple long time vendors, Mark came up with a system to eliminate the need for onsite personnel to monitor the weather and the position of the drain valve, open or closed. This new Floating Roof Drain Guard System uses a sensor to determine if any oil related chemicals have leaked into the drain system and immediately alerts personnel by sending information via modem to any cell phone and/or email address. This eliminates the need for onsite monitoring personnel and possible problems with undetected leaks or spills since the device can close the valve automatically.
